Beth’s Story

The following story comes from the Pregnancy Care Center of Rincon in Savannah, GA.

I woke abruptly this morning and remembered the pregnancy test I took the night before. No, no, that couldn’t have been real! I blinked, hoping it had been a dream. The stress of the night before flooded back. I rolled over and looked at my husband, who was staring up at the ceiling—a look of worry on his face.

We were laying in my childhood bedroom and I could hear my mom shuffling around the kitchen above us. Hopefully she was making a huge pot of coffee.

Our two year old son rolled over and started crying. I crawled to the end of our bed and peeked into his crib. We had lived with my mom since we got married two years ago. She hated that we were married and she hated that we lived in her basement. After all, we were twenty-two, we should be able to pay for our own apartment.

My husband just got a job and we were hoping to be able to move into our own place soon, but the news of last night changes everything. We would have to live with my mom for several more years to be able to afford everything.

I couldn’t imagine having to tell her I’m pregnant again. While she’s been very helpful by letting us live with her, she’s never been very emotionally supportive. 

These fears were pushing me further and further towards considering abortion.

We decided we should find out more about our pregnancy before we made any decisions. I had heard of this bus that offered free ultrasounds and pregnancy tests, so we headed there shortly after.

The nurse on the bus was so kind and loving—she treated me like I was her own daughter. She confirmed the pregnancy and offered me an ultrasound.

When she pointed out the baby’s heartbeat, I began to cry.

As I watched the screen, the baby became more and more real to me. My husband, who was playing outside with our little boy, came in to see the heartbeat. A smile filled his face and we both knew that the beating heart on the screen was as real as the little boy he was holding.

We know that this new season won’t come without its challenges, but we can’t wait to parent this little one.

We hope this article enlightened and inspired you to stand up for life.

Despite the overturning of Roe v. Wade, abortions are still prevalent in our nation. As a response to the overturning, the media: from the news to entertainment sources to even political figures and celebrities, have pushed abortion as an ongoing agenda, shaping the way this generation thinks and acts. Misinformation is being spread every day, and people are sadly believing the lies.

Our articles and stories aim to tell one thing: the truth.

We know that it is both a blessing and a challenge to understand the reality of abortion, because knowledge incites belief, and belief incites action. But we’re in this together. We believe that we can make abortion unthinkable.

With your support, we look forward to a future where young women are empowered to fight for their own rights: a right to bring life into the world, to be fearless leaders, to be examples of hope, strength, and undeterred resilience. We look forward to a future where life can happen.

If this article strengthened your belief to reach women everywhere with the truth and to let life happen, then please consider helping us extend our reach by making a gift right now. Your gift of just $10 or $20 helps our mission to create a story of hope and empowerment for every woman facing an unplanned pregnancy.

We aim to create a culture that views “pro-life” as equivalent to having empathy and compassion, providing holistic care (before and beyond pregnancy) and education, and most importantly, choosing to speak and act in love. We are pro-life, pro-love, pro-woman, pro-solution.
